Conference: Society of International Economic Law Biennial Conference

The Society of International Economic Law will hold its Third Biennial Global Conference, July 12-14, 2012, in Singapore, hosted by the National University of Singapore’s Centre for International Law and Faculty of Law. I noted the call for papers here. The program is now available here. Here's the idea:

Over the course of the last two decades, the communities of scholars, practitioners and others active in the area of international economic law have grown and diversified in ways that few could have predicted. The field of international economic law now includes a diverse array of participants and covers many new substantive issues. Inevitably, the term international economic law defies easy definition: it is at once both a fully integrated part of public international law and an identifiable field in its own right.

This conference provides an opportunity for exploring many different facets of international economic law. Given that the aim of the Society includes fostering research in the area of IEL and promoting cooperation among all parts within the field, the SIEL Global Conference offers a forum for those inside and outside academia to exchange pedagogical and research methods, as well as to explore greater cooperation among the many different constituencies of the field.
